You Have a Baby... And a Blog!

As I'm sure most of you have guessed by now, I seem to have taken a temporary blog hiatus to snug, love, cuddle and kiss all over the sweetest, cutest, most handsomest, snuggliest and lovliest little baby boy. DaddyHubs and I are so excited to introduce to you Carter Michael aka Little Teradactyl Baby.

Born Friday, July 30th at 11:18am
9lbs. 10oz.
21 1/4 inches long

Yes, you read that correctly. Unbeknownst to the medical team, Carter ended up being quite the big baby boy. Of course, motherly instinct (and the size of my ginormous midsection) told me that he was going to be a chunker, regardless of how many docs reassured me he was measuring out to be an "average sized baby." Now that he's here, there's nothing average about him!

He's wonderful. A surreal blessing that I cannot believe came home with us from the hospital. They let you take him home!? Who knew! Us! Hubs and I! Home.. with a baby! Only six days old and already on a whirlwind adventure of a lifetime.

With Daddy, less than an hour old

With little time to brush my own teeth and change my underwear, let alone blog, I'll be saving Carter's birth story for another post. In short it was quick, painless and involved some sort of awesome cocktail from one of the most amazing, world reknown anethesiologists in the country. I still have no idea what was in that "cocktail" as when asked, he replied "a good man never shares his secrets." Although, I do know that once it made it's way through my bloodstream, I immediately wanted to be BFF with just about everyone in the OR.

Day two. Mommy just wants to nom all over my cheeks.

Thank you all for your support, your sweet comments and concerned emails throughout this entire pregnancy. Although I might not have gotten to exchange emails with you as I may have liked, please know that Hubs and I appreciated every sentiment. Every chuckle. Every single comment.  


My first car ride, home from the hospital!


I promise to be back and blogging with a vengeance once we have this whole parenting thing under control. Oh, and "Teradactyl Baby?" Carter earned himself this nickname early on, about the time that he started throwing his infamous 3am meltdown. Like I said, earlier.. an absolute whirldwind adventure.

Check out my milk mustache!

And I wouldn't want it any other way. Now, if you'll excuse me.. I have a blonde-haired, blue-eyed miniature Hubs just waiting to be scooped up and loved all over....
